[Teemu Kivikangas] (and
[Angela Piccini] & [Ophra Wolf]) - "Where are you going"
"Where are you going" was an exploration of the Helsinki
main railway station focusing on the corners, hidden sides and every
day uses of the site, investigating the subject from a number of
different angles, ranging from interviews to urban archaeology.
Outcomes of the project were similarly various. For an example,
as a video installation, Where are you going constructs an architectural
model of the railway station in a form very different from the usual
way of modeling buildings. It consists of videos filmed in certain
places around the railway station during the workshop and again
later this fall. Videos are then viewed on different monitors, arranged
to form a media model of the railway station. Where are you going
draws attention from the architectural frames of the station to
the inhabitants and users of the building - small details of every
day life taking place there, the resulting signs of consumption
and simultaneous temporariness and continuity of these processes.
